Speciality oil distributor Ergon International, part of US firm Ergon Refining, has added three new storage tanks to its terminal in Antwerp, Belgium.
The new tanks have a total capacity of 9,000 m3, and take the terminal’s capacity to 39,000 m3, the equivalent of 36,650 tonnes.
Ergon International markets and distributes insulating, base and process oils in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Parent company Ergon Refining is the world’s largest producer of speciality naphthenic oils.
‘Secure supply of specialty oils for our customers is always a top priority for Ergon,’ says Per Dahlstedt, general manager of Ergon International, adding: ‘The Antwerp Terminal expansion increases Ergon’s footprint and enhances security of supply for customers by allowing for rapid response in this demanding and fast-moving market.’
